, one hears that the russians have been selling more advanced weapons to india, they have also sold some advanced weapons to malaysia and i understand indonesia. they have, obviously, a deep oblem with japan because of the northern territories, but nevertheless, if the rusans were to see their relationship with china as in some respects inhibited, aren't the assets avaible to the russians to, if you like, increase their livery somewhat? >> well, the russians have been trying to exercise those. they understand that, and so, for example, the arms relationship was always something that implicitly if the tensions became worse, the russians could do what the united states did after tiananmen which was cut that off. but now the chise can develop a lot of this stuff indigenously, so that leverages decline. the oil and gas we discussed, it's something that russia's been trying to use to, say, threaten or not threaten but really just bargain off china and japan and other countries to get them to pay higher prices, and the chinese for a while, you know, pretty much stood on their terms. now the ru

the same health care and food as boys. in india, for example, girls are less likely to be vaccinated that be boys and are take on the the hospital only when they are sicker. the girls in india from 1 to 5 years of age are 50% more likely to die than boys their age. in addition, ultra sound machines have allowed a pregnant woman to find out the sex of her own fetus and then get an abortion if it's female. the global statistics on the abuse of girls are numbing. it appears that more girls and women are now missing from the planet precisely because they are female than men were killed on the batting field in all of the wars of the 20th century. so with a new administration in power and with a female woman heading the state department, how should u.s. priorities on women's issues internationally change? guest: the secretary of state hillary clinton is doing a marvelous job of highlighting the issue of women's equality around the world. one thing that we need to do in this country is the united states senate needs to ratify the united nations women's convention, the convention on the elim

statements by secretary clinton wishing the government, the pakistan and india a happy birthday, had the independent state. -- independence day. the secretary is airborne coming back to washington, d.c. after her compelling trip to africa. she met this morning before departing with prime minister jose mavis but obviously the trip represents the commitment the of all administration and the secretary to the partnership with africa. obviously a great deal of discussion over the past 12 days about reform on the continent, the lipitor, judicial police, constitutional, but stability and in the different parts of africa to somalia the united states interest both in promoting trade between africa and the united states but also promoting trade among the states of africa, a great deal of discussion paid to the outstanding pepfar efforts in the continent both in terms of combating hiv/aids but also malaria and the trip to omar where she focused on the crimes of gender based violence and very direct conversations with a number of countries about the imperative of good government, good governance
, and india, and brazil, as long as they are there, been the fta problem is marginal. and then you have done doha round, it essential to poor countries and i think american farmers and ranchers have a bad case that their industry is more restricted and limited by foreign trade and any other. but agriculture is 8% of american exports. it is not going to grow even if there is a successful doha round. i think the administration goes to the public and say that we want to push for doha just as it is, the public should say the president is a smart guy and we trust him. given that trade is a dissident and difficult issue within the democratic party, i think that if the administration is going to make a big push for trade and spend capital on it, it has to have a different agenda that will do more for america as an economy and do more for our national security goals as a nation. let me give three points from my paper that i would like to say. one is, we need to look harder at ourselves and our own policies. they are not very good. if you look at the american system, we collect $25 million of tariffs
a contract, making sure the performance is primary and that the elements india work the plan are followed. >> thank you. i appreciate your sticking around until we got to this panel to hear from you and respond to our questions. there are probably colleagues that will want to submit questions for the record. if you could have you responses back within two weeks after you received our questions, we would appreciate that very much. i was reflecting on what we have heard from this panel and what we have heard from our first panel. i always think about what the take the weight should be for us. -- i always think about what they take away should be for us. it is important to clearly outlined the objectives of an agency. they should know that and be able to clearly outlined their objectives and what they need from a contractor. i think mr. assad talked about measuring outcomes and not process. that is a theme that several of you touched upon. i think that one of you talked about cost-benefit analysis, using clear and measurable criteria as an important point. we need clear guidelines from omb.
is to say european union, china, japan, maybe in the future brazil, india and so on -- as long as they are not on the ft a-list and the fta program is marginal, then you have the doha round centraltrality o agriculture to it is very important to poor countries and i think ranchers and farmers have the right to say their industry is more limited and restricted by foreign barriers. agriculture is 8 to 10 american exports. it's not going to grow even if there was an successful doha round. if the administration goes to the public and says we want to make a big push for doha at least as it is and for these three ftas, the public will say the president is a smart guy, i can trust him, it's got not much to do with me. and given that trade is a disadvicive and difficulty in the party, if the administration will push trade and spend political capital on it it needs to have a somewhat different agenda that will do more for america as anconomy and do more for our national security goals as a nation. and let me give, i think, three points from my paper that i would like to see.90 one is we
trade, which is to say europe, china, japan, maybe in the future brazil, india and so on, as long as they are not on this fta list and the ogrin is marginal. then you have the doha round. centrality of agriculture to it is very important to poor countries and i think american farm -- farmers and ranchers have a good case to say that their industry is more restricted and more limited by foreign trade barriers than any other. agriculture is about eight or 10% of american exports which is not going to go even if there is a big and successful doha round. so i think if the administration goes to the public and says we want to make a big push for doha at least as it is and for these fta is the public will say the president is a smart guy, i kind of trust in. not got much to do with me. and given that trade is a difficult issue within the democratic party, i think of the administration is going to make a big push for trade, and spend political capital on it, it needs to have a somewhat different agenda that will do more for america as an economy and do more for our national security goal
, india and russia they have about 3 million people. and if the only educated 10% of their kids, only 10% that would give about the same as our population if we had educated everyone to a high level. let's just say we educate only 25% which is high right now. if we educated 25% but would just give 7million people. so, when you look up the global, a, you hav a poll of 375 million people. and then you have costs of living standard of living is based on and if people aren't really pushing for these global jobs who is going to gethem? so if our kids can't be adaptable, flexible, smarter, more innovativ it's going to have all lot to say about where we are going to be as a nation. so i use this as a backdrop to talk about what and visiting all of these countries over the past years that i have had an opportunity to visit, 23 of them inurope, australia, new aland and asia and some of them i have been anywhere from four to eight times and i look around with some people he been with me on some of these trips and what we try to do and understand i think is very important, and what does it take to
senator kennedy very well. in addition, a statement from our ambassador to india that we're also going to forward. but those brief remarks, i will take questions. >> can you elaborate at all on the very productive and good progress, what it means? >> as they noted in their statement, we plan to continue talks next week. there will be a delegation coming from israel to talk to a special envoy michel. -- mitchell. we do want to make sure that these talks continue to have forward movement, as you noted. that they make good progress. i did not note that. the statement noted that. >> the statement noted that. let's let these talks play out. we have another set next week. there is room for optimism. i do not want to get into anything that will in any way cause any kind of obstruction to this movement. dave? >> in connection with the guardian newspaper, the story on the breakthrough in the middle east, one of the tenants of the store was that the united states is prepared to link its policy with iran. in other words, a harder line on iran by the united states. an incentive for the israelis. c
in today's hot shots. . >>> here's a look at hot shots. in india, people covered in a pink powder danced during a hindu festival. in afghanistan, kids clean household items damaged by flash flooding. in somalia, people suffering from post-war trauma eat at a rehabilitation center. and in istanbul, the turkish army's aerobic demonstration team performs during a graduation ceremony. hot shots, pictures worth a thousand words. >>> well, it's part of the internet culture. if you post video on youtube, at least someone is going to watch it, but if it goes viral, you could make some seriousjeanne md this most unusual money maker. >> reporter: if your kid is extra cute, telling mommy how he doesn't like you, all the time. >> i love you too, but i don't like you all the time. >> okay, thanks. >> reporter: now you can cash in on ad revenue. you can make a bundle if you shot those otters holding hands. used to be that youtube only shared ad money with people like this. fred constantly pumped out popular videos. he was sort of a semiprofessional crazy content provider. now it's the turn of the one-
the united states falling into the influence of russia, india, europe, and form a basic balance of what they call democracyization, they mean externally in the terms of the balance. the segments also -- china and russia has the u.n. vetoes and insofar as the united states are giving up the resolution, they can veto that. they can use that veto power to modify resolutions about their friends and allies in the third world developing countries. they -- the segments often in their segment they often tend to agree on what they don't like about american policy, although they don't name the united states. there's our criticism of democracy efforts or efforts from one political system on a different political system or culture. there is the attempts to militarize and so on. they settled one major point of contention. they finally made their joint border, they now finally settled that. and now that will become contested for a while. even in the energy realm if you consider energy security and dimension security, there has been a major turn around in the past year. after many years of frustrated
and is bound by. there are three nations in the world that did not sign. israel, india and pakistan. they are not bound by the treaty. but iran is. iran violated that treaty in a series of different respects, and iran has been sanctioned by the united nations for those violations. the sanctions are way too weak to cause a change in iran's behavior, but at least it demonstrates that iran has violated its nonproliferation treaty and responsibilities. the fact is that while iran has the right to develop electricity from nuclear power plants, they are clearing their natural gas. so if they want electricity, they could generate electricity for a couple of cents a kilowatt because natural gas is free to the. >> host: what is the deal? >> guest: they have no way to export it. liquefied natural gas plant would be very expensive and there are no gas pipelines running from iran to market. >> host: back to pakistan for a moment. a full page of photographs for afghans. a new test of democracy. the presidential election, their elections are coming up in 10 days, august 20. what are your hopes fo
